25 weeks

Weekly e-mail update: He's beginning to exchange his long, lean look for some baby fat. As he does, his wrinkled skin will begin to smooth out and he'll start to look more and more like a newborn. He's also growing more hair — and if you could see it, you'd now be able to discern its color and texture.
How far along?: 25 weeks
How big is baby?: Head to heels, your baby now measures about 13 1/2 inches. His weight — a pound and a half — isn't much more than an average rutabaga
Weight gain?: I was up 10 pounds last week but I haven't checked this week. I am assuming I would be up a pound or so after all the scrumptious food I ate for Easter.
Stretch marks?: Not yet. Lathering up the lotion.
Maternity clothes?: Still using the belly band with my normal clothes. Please summer, would you hurry up, I really want to wear my summer dresses.
Food cravings?: Any kind of salad will do- need to get my folic acid.
Sleep?: It has been hits or misses this week. The heartburn has started - save me now...
Gender?: We are having a SON!
Exercise?: Still working up a sweat by packing.
What's been going on?: I met with my ob/gyn this week and received great news - everything is on track and the ultrasound came back perfect. It was a great feeling to share with everyone this past week that we will in fact be welcoming a little boy into the family. The name hunt has begun and let me tell you, I really don't think it is going to be an easy one. So, if anyone has a good suggestion, then throw it our way! The next week looks to be a busy one with baby and settling into our new home. This month, I will have the dreaded gluscose test - I am so not looking forward to it. The little man has been kicking away; before too long, I believe his kicks will be strong enough to grab Little Miss L.'s attention. Here's to a fun filled week of unpacking :)

On a side note- Little Miss L. and I had to watch history in the making this morning. She absolutely loved the wedding ceremony, she kept asking to see it again!
